How to find a good western medical doctor
To tell how to
find a good western medical doctor, it should be pointed out
that we are talking about the doctors in the surgical department
or in the non-surgical department, such as doctors in the
internal medicine, pediatric, or similar department.
Surely to find a
good doctor in surgery, you need to know if the doctor has
performed the similar operation before and with high success
rate. You may have to go to different city or country to find
one, no matter if the doctor is in
China, or Sweden. No one
can tell that doctor in a given country is better than in
A good doctor in
internal medicine, or a good family doctor, should:
(1). tend to
apply less lab tests, X-ray, MRI, Can scan, etc. to establish
their diagnosis. They should listen to your complain and make a
correct diagnosis before such harmful or costly tests.
(2). tend to use
less drugs for the treatment, or to use other as simple way as
possible to solve your problem, such as diet consulting, correct
physical exercise, etc. They are so hesitated to apply hormones
(cortisone, thyroid hormone, or sexual hormone products) or
suggest surgical therapy. They tend to lower the dose of the
drugs, rather than try to increase the dose or to use much more
kinds of drugs.
In another way,
they should not only play the drugs, but also apply emotional
therapies, etc. They should try to reduce their transference
rate to a ‘specialist’, rather than so eager to push you away to
(3). pay less
attention to talk the theory (diagnosis), but focus on the
solution of the illness (treatment). If they make a diagnosis
but cannot solve it, what is the use of their diagnosis to you?
The diagnosis term only pleases themselves, but meaningless to
you. If they indeed focus on the solution, they should be
open-minded to welcome different means to solve your illness.
It is well known
that without a clear diagnosis, no treatment can really be
started in the conventional medicine. It is not the weakness of
a given doctor, but a systematic weakness of the medical system.
